E4G: Train2Game has revealed some interesting research on how the UK game development industry lacks skill.
That is just harsh to jump out and say that...
MediaMolecule is a great company.
Media Molecule? Lionhead Studios? Rockstar North? Wtf is this shit. Don't approve this POS article
rare, and ruffian games 2
It is not an article, its from a survey.
lol, it is clearly not an article. It is a survey, quit jumping to conclusions :P
Yes I saw it, but wtf is up with the flamebait title?
flaimbait alert another "lame" article and wesytern devs>>jap devs right now
Nobody said they didn't have skills when Europe was such a huge force behind MTV's so-called music playing days. Burn in your own trousers. I'm not even from there but have MAD RESPECT for all areas.
new employees may not have the skills, but that doesn't mean uk developers aren't skilled. this headline is misleading.
That's one thing about this Gen that's been great, is that devs and comps have been heavily examining each others secrets/engines to break through the proverbial plaque of stagnated ideas. I will now call it the Amalgenated Phase, because the shift in quality has turned upside down, and for great reasons. We shouldn't sight what just are favorite developers are doing, we should look at it as a whole so we can acknowledge growth.
I take it you're from the GREAT BRITAIN? lol
That's because, the Americans, Canadians, The Dutch and Australians have pinched them! Lets face it... who wants to be taxed like shit in the UK?
In my current class we have a game programmer that's come from the UK. He came to Canada because, according to him, the UK just doesn't pay for game programmers, or any programmers for that matter. Certainly not the types of wages that Canadian game programmers are receiving. Looking at the wages posted by this survey, I was quite shocked by how low they were. £18,001 to £20,000 for a game programmer? Kids make that doing call center work here right out of school. And considering the high cost of living in the UK, how on earth can they expect to retain any talent whatsoever?
True what you say darkride66.
Wages are low for most jobs in the uk at the moment, with most job advertisments getting over 100 applicants just for a single position. Times are tough.
The UK is a sinking ship, and with the new government, it's only getting worse! The tax is rediculous!!
Bullsh*t The UK has many amazing developers.
